Hollywood couple Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow have chosen comedian Simon Pegg to be godfather to their three-year-old daughter Apple.

But the Shaun Of The Dead star has no intention of providing moral guidance to the celebrity offspring - and insists he wants his young charge to have fun.

He says: "I'd like to think I'm a really great, fun godfather.

"It's much more interesting than trying to be a good influence on her. I'm a comedian - it's what they expect."
